Leading the Way with Your Natural Talents While Managing Perfectionism with Guest Natalie Gingrich

As the creator of The Ops Authority and a successful certification program for operations experts, Natalie Gingrich is someone that we can all take a lesson from in discipline, excellence, and grace.  

Natalie is an expert in business operations, so it was especially fun to sit down with her to compare notes about how to build a business as the CEO/entrepreneur while being more comfortable in an operations role.  

During the interview, we dive deeper than either of us anticipated into what she calls "the vice of perfectionism" that actually stems from her anxiety, and how she's learned to do one of the hardest things that any perfectionist struggles with: Settling for less than what she perceives as perfect, and sharing her struggle with her community, family and friends.
